1. recruiting Final Fantasy IX Tribute Album [Looking for more Participants]

Recommended Posts

Hello guys! :ph34r:
I'm Hashel the founder and album organizer for the Pixel Mixers community!
We are now working on what should be our 23rd or 24th album (depending on how fast we work on stuff), a tribute to Final Fantasy IX.
(Current list of our albums so far => https://pixel-mixers.com/2018/04/08/pixel-mixers-albums-list/)

We do free stuff (so not licensed) and we already have someone for the art (Leo Mind Waker) and mastering (Ro Panuganti).
The goal would be to have at least one cover/remix by song from the original OST (songs from the OST+ are allowed but would end on a "bonus disc") but for that we'd need a bit of help :nicework:

Here is the sheet, with tracklist on page 1 and rules on page 2, as you can see we got most of the songs claimed already (you may recognize some names from OCR and other communities)
=> https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/13K3di3vP2FRzDdi68NoE7J6YwPEzKNJIeAlMZeOYNPM/edit?usp=sharing

The general rules are:

- Deadline: 31st of March (few more days will be allowed to let ppl polish their mix if needed, but we MUST release it in end of April / start of May)

- Songs must be 2 minutes long minimum (exception for the very short songs, like the sleeping jingle)

- Any music style is welcome, live recording or programmed VSTs. Just do not use anything from the game itself please
- You can go crazy creative with the arrangements as long as the original is still "easily" recognizable.

- Songs must be sent unmastered and with the speak set around -6db

Once all the songs from the main OST (you still can claim songs from the OST+ if the remaining songs from main OST do not inspire you and that duplicates are not allowed yet) is the will be claimed, we'll allow duplicates for ppl who are not already on the album and ppl who finished their 1st track (3 track maximum as main arranger but you an be a guest on as many tracks you want) happy.png

If you want to have an idea of what we do, here is the trailer of the FFVI album we did last year:

Okay so i hope i haven't forgot too many things, if you have any kind of questions, feel free to ask me, if you want to claim a song just tell me in here or private =)

Hope to see some of you making cool tracks 8-)

Thanks!

I might not be much of a team player and I'm definitely eccentric. However I like Final Fantasy and agree that Nobuo Uematsu is one of gaming greatest composers (up there with Zelda's Koji Kondo and Yoko Shimomura in my opinion. I'd love to collaborate with someone and wouldn't mind taking a track (could you suggest me one) either. Here's a couple of my tracks.

Remix of "Carol of the Bells"

Original of mine.

Sup, ty for your interest :)
Any free songs on the sheet that you'd be interested in?
For that Carol of the Bells on, i'd say it's a bit repetitive and would need more work (especially since we ask songs to be 2 minutes long minimum, exception for very short ones, like the sleeping jingle).
Would need an effort on the production and sounds choices too, it does sound a bit cheap to me. (my knowledge of electro is a bit limited, tho)

However, if you're ready to work a bit on those points, we have a really supportive community and a quality control team that'd help you and give you constructing feedback!

Don't think I'll be able to take a track myself, but i'm happy to offer performance skills on trumpet/flugelhorn if anyone needs it.

Hey that's really kind =)
Sending you a link to our Discord (if you use it? works both with an app or internet browser) so you can be in touch with the guys arranging the songs :)

I'd like a link to the Discord server? For the record I chose "Tonight" (FFIX) as my piece (it's the only one that I could find a MIDI for). I think I can add some interesting accompaniment to the simple loop and go with my signature Trance style. Does it still have to be over 2 minutes? I mean the piece itself is only 15 seconds. 

TSori, would you mind helping me with my "Sherbet Island" (Mario Kart 64) remix?

Hello, this link should work ;)

And no it doesn't have to be 2 minutes as it is a really short track, but if you can get close to 1 minutes it would be nice =)
Ofc if you can make it longer without being repetitive it's good too!

Hey Ronald Poe, I saw the topic you put up in the forum looking for help too.   It looks like you're wanting to do a Psytrance style Remix.  Unfortunately  I don't think I'm the right guy to help you.   I'm not familiar with that genre and I'm mainly a performer.  My composing skills are very limited.  If you have some music written and need someone to record live trumpet for it, I'm happy to help, but that's all I can really offer.   Good luck, and sorry!

Little up for this project, only those tracks are still available:

- "South Gate" ("South Gate, at the Border")

- "Mourning the Sky"

- "Look Back, See the Frog!"

- "The Four Mirrors"

- "I Want to Be Your Canary"

Once those are claimed we'll allow duplicates too.
All the songs from the OST+ ca be claimed too.

EDIT

As someone took the last song it means that this album is full and that we are opening duplicates!
So if you are not on the album already, or if you finished your 1st song, you can claim a duplicate.
So far all the songs are free for duplicate, except:

- Hunter's Chance (duplicate by Fishy)
